Crochet Flower Bag :-)

I finished my crochet flower bag last night and I couldn't be happier with how it looks! I posted the details of how the flowers came about in an earlier post, so I'll just explain how I attached them--I split some of the yarn threads and used two threads and an upholstrey needle to back stich the flowers onto the bag (the flowers were held in place with pins while I sewed them on). This is the finished product:

I am probably going to make bags like this one (this size) and also smaller tote bags. I have to find where I can get black canvas tote bags wholesale though--and not the tacky looking ones I saw in American Apparel. I'm so not into a black bag with ecru handles. Ewwww. Can you say tacky? I love the way this bag looks though--it came out perfect!

This bag is so utterly adorable, that I think I'm in love with you. Seriously, let's run away together.

I think I need to hire you as my ecologically friendly accessory designer.
